The lands under Greece occupation far extended the country of today, compromising almost 400 independent city-states. Honorable and skilled warriors, Greece’s martial prowess encompasses spear infantry, archers, cavalry, pike men, and slingers. Their combination of stalwart defensive units and strong ranged attackers makes Greek battle lines difficult to penetrate.


Resolve and power forms King Leonidas’ battle plan. The ultimate defensive wall, his shield bash can disrupt and break enemy lines. His ability to both hide from missile attacks and create an impenetrable bulwark allow Leonidas to hold his ground.
Powerful yet brittle, the Eponymous Archon Miltiades targets both body and mind. His rapid infantry charge and ability to wound downed enemies means his best work is performed on the flank. Being able to inflict targeted defense and morale damage lets Miltiades soften up foes for more attack-minded units.
The Great King Alexander focuses on pinpoint strikes to disable and scatter enemy forces. His “hammer” charge ploughs through units opening them up for capture between the “anvil”, which can lock foes in place. His highly mobile cavalry units in wedge formation are perfect for hunting down the enemy.
The Illryian Princes Cynane is a born hunter. Excelling at supporting and striking maneuvers, her quick movement and tracking abilities allow her to pursue and mark battlefield prey. Her lightning-fast reload speeds for her bows create a perfect hit-and-run sharpshooter.


Here you see only some of the units belonging to this faction. Many more are eager to follow your orders and charge into battle, Commander.

Rally them under your banners!

Rhodian Slingers

Rhodian Slingers are a unique missile unit that, as the name suggests, are armed only with slings. Do not let this fact fool you: these warriors can be deadly in combat. Their heavy lead bullets thrown with a sling are extremely good at breaking bones and disabling enemies, regardless of armor. However, an inability to deliver arcing fire limits their efficiency to situations when they have a clear shot at a target.

Rhodian Slingers have an extended view range and can use shields to cover from return fire. As well as other missile units, Rhodian Slingers are the primary target of cavalry and melee infantry, requiring spear or other infantry unit support.

Companion Cavalry
Companion Cavalry is an elite heavily-armed unit. The riders wear cuirasses and Boeotian helmets, heading into battle with long spears, which makes them perfect for ram attacks. Then, with the enemy startled, Companion Cavalry can withdraw to engage in another routing attack. The lack of shields increases their mobility, but also makes them vulnerable to missile and artillery units.

Royal Spartans
These elite wield two-meter-long spears, and with their muscle cuirasses, polished greaves, Corinthian crested helmets, and bronze hoplons, are a perfect defensive choice. Their almost impenetrable armor means most missile units will find it hard to deal with the Spartans. However, Royal Spartans will falter in forest combat, so you might want to choose a more mobile and light unit for this purpose.

Scythian Archers
Extremely powerful 80-centimeter Scythian bows can hit the mark at a very impressive range, which makes the Scythian Archers a perfect match for providing support. When they secure a suitable position (especially on the top of a hill or in forests) and then utilize their ability to temporarily increase their firing rate and accuracy, they can significantly improve your chances for victory. However, remember that firing projectiles into the thick of battle can damage allies and earn a battle penalty. Like many ranged units, Scythian Archers are vulnerable to cavalry and melee units, requiring spear or other infantry unit support.
